Conor McGregor has taken to Twitter to tell Floyd Mayweather he means business.
Amid rife speculation over the so-called ‘fight of the century’, Irish UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor has publicly called out Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather for his silence.
Days after McGregor signed a contract to fight Mayweather, not a peep has been heard from the boxer extraordinaire and McGregor is getting impatient, apparently.
Solid work today.

McGregor shared a photograph with his followers, fresh from training, with a direct message to Mayweather.

Speaking to The Mac Life after the signing of the ‘historic contract‘, McGregor said:
It is an honour to sign this record breaking deal alongside my partners Zuffa LLC, The Ultimate Fighting Championship and Paradigm Sports Management.
The first, and most important part of this historic contract has now officially been signed off on. Congratulations to all parties involved. We now await Al Haymon and his boxer’s signature in the coming days.
Although Mayweather has yet to agree to the terms, Dana White stated this contract is a significant step on the road to getting McGregor out of the Octagon and Mayweather back in the ring after an almost two-year hiatus. White also confirmed that it would be a ‘straight up boxing fight’.
This comes just weeks after McGregor’s coach opened up about building a specially-designed boxing ring in which the Irish fighter, whose bark is just as bad as his bite, can train.
In the meantime, fans and McGregor will have to play the waiting game as we are yet to hear from Team Mayweather.
